The C.A.M. Report
Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog is intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Can I interest you in a probiotic smoothie?

    Functional Ingredients reports that a California-based juice and smoothie manufacturer, Naked Juice, is selling “the first 100% juice smoothie with probiotics that aid in digestive and immune health.”

    Naked Juice Probiotic is being offered as a mango, orange, and pineapple blend and includes the probiotic strain, Bifidobacterium. It also contains the prebiotic fructo-oligosaccharides. Other flavors are being considered.

    It reflects a worldwide trend to incorporate probiotics into familiar foods such as probiotic chocolate.
